Hello From the Inside

Life

Two months of zero posts, I was out living my life, hitting the gym, cooking meals, getting to bed on time and then BAM – mother nature intervened and I think I’m going to have a lot more time on my hands. So, welcome back to my blog 😉 I have been at home for the past week, coffee intake is at an all time high, productivity at an all time low – I blame my cats. But I cannot express how grateful I am that my job is still intact.

I have to say that I am pretty pissed off about this whole coronavirus thing, just when the weather is good enough to get outside, we are told to stay in. Now, I think parks and trails are fine if you are still social distancing but I’m not a doctor. Also though, I work in Parks & Rec and our parks our open but be sure to bring your own sanitary wipes. Gas prices could not be any lower but  who needs it to get anywhere since we’re all staying home? Actually, grocery stores outside of the metro are pretty well stocked and if people don’t stop panic buying everything in sight, I’m going to have to take a trip up north so good thing gas is cheap. Here’s what’s on my mind…

I’m lucky, I grocery shop on Wednesdays to just avoid crowds in general and I got my groceries well before things went nuts. That being said, when can I eat them exactly? Should I wait? Will there be more groceries in a couple of weeks when people settle into this new normal? Good thing I’m already fasting for Lent…Totally off topic but I saw a photo of the Pope walking the streets of Rome! Who let him outside?!

Here is something that I am struggling with, physical stores have been on the decline for the past decade in the US because of online shopping. Now we can’t seem to stay home? As a capricorn, I’m skeptical of everything but it really does make me wonder about the information we’re being fed – either everyone is out shopping or we aren’t…explain this to me. If everyone who could stay home would, that’d be great.

The social distancing strategy seems like a good idea but I would also like to volunteer to be infected so then I am immune and can go about my life knowing that I’m not putting anyone in danger. It’s hard to believe that we aren’t just prolonging the pandemic by not preemptively exposing the healthy population and getting them immune to protect the at risk. Is that totally nuts? It’s definitely going to get worse before it gets better, I think that’s to be expected but I wish we could speed it up.

I hope you’re doing well, hanging in there…let me know what you’ve been up to in the comments! If you want some light reading on pandemics throughout history, I found this one interesting and kinda comforting – the human race has survived some shit.

  1. Lol my coffee intake was at an all-time high while my productivity was at an all-time low, too. I will also blame that on my cats. 😂

    Kind of crazy how much different info we got about the virus. Now, they’re saying if you catch it once, you’re not immune & the next time could possibly be worse!

    1. Right?! Then the face mask thing, first being told they wouldn’t help & now some states are mandating that people wear them! It just makes you wonder about everything. I finally got to take the antibody test to see if I had it, apparently I didn’t but the test is only accurate half the time! I’m off my MS meds because they are immunosuppressive and was hoping I was in the clear. No such luck. Stay healthy out there 🤍

      1. Oh my gosh, yeah I remember them saying the masks were only for those who were already sick or something. Our state just mandated them one hour ago!

        Wait, so was your test inaccurate? Are you positive?

      2. My doctor said that 50% of the time the test can actually tell you if you had COVID and 50% of the time it can’t! I was like…wow…helpful. Hahaha!
